HELOC and private client mortgages drove the growth in retail loans during the quarter. Credit quality continued to improve, and our net interest margin remained stable. Additionally, our focus on cost savings continued as we completed implementation of initiatives necessary to achieve the $30 million in expense reductions announced at the beginning of the year.”
